Café Prèsque Presents: A Meal of Style

Café Prèsque Presents: A Meal of Style

“We present, for your dining pleasure, a meal of style.

Having devised a collection of the most garish and aesthetically perplexing dishes imaginable, we seek to dazzle you with some of the most bizarre and mysterious forms of food presentation known to mankind. Taking inspiration from the once fashionable arts of ambiguous garnishing, incessant piping, and ostentatious food-dressing, we have designed a meal that goes all out. ‘It’s too much!’ we hear you cry. And indeed, perhaps we needn’t have moulded that fois gras into a figure of Michelangelo’s David, or turned that melon into a bunch of grapes. But let us forget necessity for a moment. Let us for once take delight in the flamboyance of yesteryears, in the extravagance of kings!

Please do not fear, oh gracious diner. Beneath the kitsch and semi-unpalatable exterior lies a discrete and unprecedented handling of flavour that only a master chef de cuisine could concoct, with unforeseen flavours belying even the most familiar of dishes.”

The meal can be vegetarian

Curated and produced by: Silvio Palladino and Sorcha-Mae Stott-Strzala
